Anita: Well, Todd, since you've asked me about SanFrancisco, tell me, have you ever been to Prague?
Todd: I have been to Prague. Actually, I lived in Prague forabout a week, or two weeks.
Todd: A long time ago.
Todd: Right out of college.
Anita: Really. And how did you like it?
Todd: Well, it was great. It was one of the first Europeancities I went to, and it was so different from America, and I thought thearchitecture downtown was really beautiful.
Anita: So what was your first impression when you got there?
Todd: Well, when I first got there, I had no place to stay,and this young kid came up to me and convinced me to live in his house.
Todd: So they... his mother was renting rooms to foreigners,so I lived with a Czech family for about ten days.
Anita: Really, so did you eat Czech food?
Todd: I did, but you know I don't remember anything aboutit. It was so long ago. It seemed really good though.
Anita: I guess. I like it. So what did you do in Prague?What did you see there?
Todd: Well, of course I went to the downtown area which hadthe castle and the bridge and lots of the old buildings, and I just took localtransportation. I took the... I guess it's not a subway or...
Anita: It is. You can call it a subway. We call it theMetro.
Todd: Yeah, I took the Metro to different places and I tookbuses and just walked around the city and I had a good time.
Anita: Did you find it cheap or expensive compared to theStates?
Todd: Well, it was really cheap, but at that time I wasworking in Europe and I had no money, so I still was very poor.
Anita: Hmm, I see.
Todd: Yeah, so now... I was in Prague, you know, 12 yearsago. Do you think the city changed a lot since I was there?
Anita: It's changed very much. I guess since the fall ofCommunism in 1989, the city started changing at that time and it's stillchanging. It's become very modern. Of course the historical parts are stillpreserved. You're not allowed to build skyscrapers or very tall buildings. It'sgood because after the fall of Communism a lot of the buildings were renovated,so the whole city looks like it's new. It's old new.
Anita: It's very colorful. It's just beautiful. Yeah.
Todd: Yeah, I remember, the city almost looked like a museumbecause the buildings were just so pristine and perfect.
Anita: Yeah. It's... I personally just love walking throughthe streets. You can never get tired of that.
Todd: Well, hopefully I can go back again someday.
